Facts & Figures
  • Tropical forests cover 23 per cent of the Earth's land surface, but they are disappearing at a rate of 4.6 million hectares a year. (At the staggering rate of a football field per second).
  • Destruction of forests create numerous environmental catastrophes, including altering local rainfall patterns, accelerating soil erosion, causing the flooding of rivers, and threatening millions of species of plants, animals and insects with extinction.
  • The warmest 22 years ever recorded have happened within the last 25 years. The two warmest ever recorded, within the last three years!
  • Acceleration of sea level rise since 1993 has doubled to 3.1mm/year compared to the period between 1961 & 1993. Sea levels could increase by 0.59m by the end of the century. It will have an impact on 27 countries, including India, where millions live within 50 km of the coastline as in the case of Mumbai and Chennai. (IPCC, Jan 2007)
  • India's emissions of carbon dioxide have increased by 88% since 1990 and could increase to 3,000 million tonnes by 2020 which would be twice the level of 2000. (IPCC, Jan 2007)
  • A long haul flight produces 3.75 tonnes of carbon dioxide (or one tonne of carbon). (UNEP)
  • One hectare of trees can absorb 6 tonnes of carbon dioxide in a year. (UNEP)
  • In one year, an average tree inhales 12 kilograms (26 pounds) of carbon dioxide and exhales enough oxygen for a family of four for a year. (UNEP)
  • Consumers use more than 500 billion plastic shopping bags per year worldwide that pollute our soil, rivers, lakes and oceans.
  • A jute bag replaces hundreds of plastic bags over its lifetime of use.
